We've pretty much been living out of the pantry and the near freezing garage for drinks so we can keep all the stuff cold in the fridge by not opening if for fear of lost power for unknown periods of time for more than a week now. Our power has been off and on so many times I could retire again if someone would pay me a $10 / time per week. I make a mean Ritz cracker with crunchy peanut butter for sure. Did score some wildflower honey to mix with the peanut butter yesterday too.ūü§óūüėč

Hang in there in cold and snowy Texas.......hey wait that's supposed to be Ohio's line !    :o

We've been watching you all on TV good luck and hang in there !

Only one more hour below freezing with only one more brief touch of it @ 32F overnight Sun. From then on for at least two weeks no more freezing weather. Now the state is trying to recover potable drinking water as they fix all broken mains and individual breaks in homes. Our 2 kids both live within 5 min. but their side of the main street is on boil while we are not. They bring their families here for showers and fill containers from our "good" water. My daughter gets a refill of their propane today they think. They were down to less that 10% which they use for keeping the house above 50F inside. Worst we got was 58F during one of the rolling blackouts when it was 5F outside.

Well 2020 was a year to forget and a lot of things changed including our sports and eating habits.  Less live sports with tailgating and parties and more cooking and eating at home.  I've kind of changed my GAMEDAY recipes and grilling stuff accordingly. -but-. will be upgrading them as the seasons change.

One thing too we have had or will have tried all of the recipes here including ideas from all of you.  Here's one of our favorites, this recipe is from Mr Food but we've used others.

5-Minute Beef Stir Fry truly good for any GAMEDAY or any day of the week.  Why get takeout ?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

......edit add, what generally are the differences in recipes or what/how you cook dinner ?

1. Differences in spices you like or how spicy or ūüĒ• hot.

2. What you have on hand.  Don't be afraid to experiment !  

 

5-MINUTE BEEF STIR FRY made fresh in your own wok or skillet over rice.

 
SERVES. 4. COOK TIME. 5 MINUTES
 

You only need five minutes to make this homemade Chinese recipe taste take-out worthy, so grab your wok (or a skillet!) and some fresh ingredients and get ready to impress your whole family. One taste and you'll never order Chinese take-out again!

This recipe proves that learning how to make beef stir fry is easier than you might think. It's amazing what fresh ingredients can do! We think you'll enjoy preparing this meal so much that you'll wonder why you didn't make it sooner. The good news is that, since it only takes 5 minutes to make, you and your family can enjoy this stir fry beef as often as you want. It's truly a crowd pleasing (and cook pleasing) dinner!

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 6 to 8 slices fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound boneless top sirloin, thinly sliced across the grain. (you can substitute your favorite steak here)
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces fresh snow peas, trimmed
  • 1 onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 cups warm cooked rice

What to Do

  1. In a wok or large nonstick skillet over high heat, heat oil until hot. Add ginger, garlic, and beef; cook 2 minutes, or until beef is browned. Add red pepper, snow peas, and onion and continue cooking 2 to 3 minutes, or until vegetables are crisp tender.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, and cornstarch. Pour into wok and cook until sauce thickens. Serve over rice.

I see a gold mine of opportunity for someone with a little ambition to franchise this..... but do check out the existing names and competition first -but- hot dogs sell.....and good profit margins !

This is DEFINITELY GAMEDAY food !

Reminds me of our local hot dog shoppe here in Girard Ohio.......

CLASSIC CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE, mmmmm, this is what we are having this Wednesday March 17, 2021 St Patrick's Day !  https://www.mrfood.com/Beef/Classic-Corned-Beef-and-Cabbage/apv/1

 And see the link at the bottom for the fastest Corn Beef and Cabbage.

SERVES  6. COOK TIME. 3 HOURS 10 MINUTES

Nothing says St. Patrick's Day like this Classic Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe. You don't have to be Irish to enjoy a taste of fork-tender corned beef with a hearty helping of potatoes, carrots, and cabbage. Now that's what we call dinnertime goodness!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (3- to 3-1/2-pound) corned beef brisket with pickling spices
  • 8 cups water
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
  • 4 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1 green cabbage, cut into 2-inch wedges

What to Do

  1. In a large Dutch oven over high heat, bring corned beef with pickling spices and water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 2-1/2 hours, or until almost fork-tender.
  2. Add potatoes, carrots, and cabbage to corned beef and continue cooking, covered, 25 to 30 minutes, or until vegetables and corned beef are fork-tender.
  3. Place corned beef on a cutting board and slice across the grain. Serve with vegetables.

Common Questions About Corned Beef

So your corned beef is in the pot, you've checked it with a fork, but you're scratching your head wondering if it's "fork tender" and asking yourself "How do you know when corned beef is done cooking?" Well, the answer is simple! If you have a meat thermometer handy, insert it into the meat (being sure not to touch the sides or bottom of your cooking pot!), and check the internal temperature. Corned beef should be cooked to a minimum of 145 degrees Farenheit for the ideal tender, juicy result. 

Another very common question is "Do you rinse corned beef before cooking?" And the answer is yes, absolutely (unless you want a very salty result). Don't worry that this will rinse away all the flavor, though! All you're doing is removing the excess salt which has been infusing the meat with loads of flavor, up until cooking time--it's supposed to be removed before going on the heat! That little seasoning packet will continue adding plenty of delicious flavors to your recipe as it cooks, and you won't miss that excess salt.

I always like themed tailgates.  As we get in to the season, I may add some tailgate options that highlight our opponents city.

in my search for the perfect biscuits, I'm finally happy that I have the biscuits.

But I have the same search going for the perfect cornbread, and they either have no taste

or too crumbly. not good.

Biscuits :

2 cups soft white flour

1 tbsp baking powder (the good stuff)

1 tsp salt (might cut back on the salt a bit since I melt good salted butter on them after baking)

1/4 cup crisco butter flavored shortening (prefer all vegetable)

3/4 cup buttermilk or 2/3 cup milk. (I had to use the 2/3 cup with a half tsp apple cider vinegar - worked terrific).

next time I"ll try buttermilk.

*************************************************

    cornbread. I used to make Hawaiian cornbread, but it was more like a sweet cake. Not what I want with bbq ribs or a plate

of ham and beans. Just can't get it right. Too much or all corn meal - way too crumbly. no sugar/too much flour... - loses taste.

work in progress.

I tried out my oven fried Yucca root and learned a lesson. Flip them over halfway through or the bottom tends to overcook a bit more than the top. Still they were very good with the hard bottoms. My brother comes to town tomorrow and I will be cooking them again since he also grew to like them when we lived in Venezuela. He'll be pleased with experiment #2.ūüėč

My favorite for best & easiest dip.....Key to this is NO salsa or tomatoes. Trust me, it's addictive!

1 lb roll of Bob Evans sausage (original in the white pack)...browned & crumbled

1 pack of Velveeta Mexican Cheese (cubed)

1 can ceam of celery soup

Combine all & microwave & stir at 2 minute intervals.

I serve with Shearers yellow tortilla rounds, but Scoops, etc work fine too.
